Our favourite experiences and hotels for a luxury honeymoon in Indonesia
Lined up along the equator, the Indonesian archipelago is a stunning collection of 17,000 islands, each one home to tropical weather, pristine beaches, crystal blue waters and a volcanic landscape that over the millennia has left these islands draped in fertile rainforests. A perfect honeymoon destination for any couple looking for an immersive experience.
Life bustles in Java as one of the most populous places in all of Asia, with stunning volcanoes making up the backbone of the island. Whilst Sumatra to the west offers an escape into the remote side of the archipelago offers the perfect escape for some newlyweds. To the east, the picture-perfect island of Bali and Lombok are home to some of the world’s best surf, emerald green rice paddies, a unique artistic culture and the second highest, most spectacular volcano in the whole of Indonesia.

Luxury honeymoon experiences in Indonesia
Go back in time with a candlelit dinner at Pak Bilal
Having an authentic experience is often the difference between a good and great honeymoon; an evening at Pak Bilal’s is definitely the latter. A candlelit, multi-course menu, served in the bamboo-thatched sugar shack where Pak and his family run a palm sugar processing farm. Not just perfect for a honeymoon experience, but for anyone planning on dropping the knee and popping the question.
Tour Mount Rinjani via helicopter
Mount Rinjani is the dramatic centrepiece of the picturesque island of Lombok. At 3,276m, it is the second largest mountain in the archipelago behind Mount Kerinci. The emerald green crater lake makes it an outstanding mountain to visit, and experiencing it by helicopter is a view that will stay with you forever.
Dine at the intimate Dalem Segara
It doesn’t get much more romantic than a private gourmet dinner at Dalem Segara, an ancient holy temple in Bali. You’ll be given a traditional Balinese welcome by the holy Mangku, who will impart a blessing and a Hindu purification ritual to symbolically cleanse your soul. An evening that has the ability to change your spiritual and culinary expectations for a lifetime.
Luxury hotels in Indonesia
COMO Uma Ubud, Bali
COMO Uma Ubud is the epitome of a luxury hideaway. Set back from the coast, it’s the perfect base to enjoy all the experiences this picturesque island has to offer, including an abundance of activities and outdoor adventures.
When you’re not off cycling through rice fields or exploring the romantic temples, the world class wellness spa (COMO hotels are renowned for their attention to health and wellness), mouth-watering cuisine and friendly staff will ensure you are relaxed and well looked after, just as you should be on your first holiday as a married couple.
The Lombok Lodge Hotel
Designed by architect Vittorio Simoni, Lombok Lodge has a beautiful contemporary simplicity, contrasted against the lush green forests and turquoise water. Be sure to wake early and take in the sunrise from the infinity pools, where the views out into the Bali sea will take your breath away and leave you both with memories to last a lifetime.
If the contemporary design of The Lombok Lodge isn’t what you’re after, Amanjiwo has made a conscious effort to not contrast its natural surroundings, but instead designed to reflect them instead. Surrounded by aromatic coffee plantations and mountains on either side on the central Indonesian island of Java; Amanjiwo is one of those must stay hotels when searching for the perfect honeymoon hideaway.
